Our router requires a password, so it should be secure. I think that is what you were asking. If you meant is it physically fine, at the moment it seems to be fine where it is.

You could also run some virus / spyware applications (like spybot s&d) to determine this.
Update the firmware on the router - there should be some information on their website about updates and how to update it.
Nope, nothing wrong with the networking, 0% used.
I think, perhaps, I'm creating problems from no where and that the problems are just higher because I've switched roles on some of the things I used to do.
I am used to sudden connection drops, but they just seemed more frequent lately, and they seemed to be more than just the drops but like it was just plain slower, but I think it may simply be my normal connection that I'm seeing from a different view point. The "link speed" for my wireless network seems to be 54 Mbps.
It still feels slower, but it may not be, it may just be that something unknown beyond my influence is adding to the slower connections. Like what one of the previous posters said, it may be a phone or something.
Unless it becomes a major problem I'm just going to let it lay where it is for now.
Thank you all for your help.
